POLICE THINK GILLESPIE HAS BAD ONES T 10 Elaborate Plans Laid Round Up Bold Yeggmen I Eegina, Oct. 6. In the. dead ot night on Wednesday while 'the citi- zens 'were comfortably sleeping, aw.iv the time, eleven mounted policemen quietly rode down to within 'a short distance- of the station and boarded a special train for places unknown, but from an authoritative source comes the information that the move will practically round up the gang of yegg; men who-have been making so well by plying their operations throughout the west. Developments are now an- xiously being awaited and word mav be expected at any time. The inr- portanee attached to the move of the police is apparent when consideration is given the quietness with which they have been- moving. Such a move would not be made without an end it view. i. Conjecture has it that .they headed west, but .of course that. is..unreliable in. view of the fact that only the offi- cials themselves know of "the plans and on that.point they are very reti- I cent, practically refusing to "discuss the point. The carefulness of the police in cov- ering up their movements is evidence in itself of-their expectations. Short- ly after midnight they entrained their horses in'the box-car" attached to the] and climbed ..aboard. Of their j movements since port has not been-received. .It is gen- erally surmised by those with the move' that skirting1 the western _____.---- Saskatchewan, as that is-supposed-to i be where the yeggmcn centre.. Just j what importance was attached to ;tb.e j capture of the three desperadoes- atj Lethbridge was-not learned until this j 'morning'when a special wire ceived from that place stating that the man who gave th'e name of Rogers is none other than the notorious Tho- mas White, the Montana crook, who is wanted in half a hundred cities and who has given the United States police mor.c trouble than the' average half doacn crooks. White has a rec- ord at Great Falls for being one of the smoothest- individuals, that ever operated in that section.'. However by his capture .his game is cooked. The! United States authorities will in all probability endeavor-to get .their hands on him after Canadian citizens get justice. White, the police believe, is the leader, of the gang-, From Quebec comes word to' the ef- fect thai the three men who escaped in the battle following the blowing, open of a safe a short time ago in Quyon, a small village of that prov- ince, are believed to belong to the The Quebec deed was perpetxat! ed by four men, escaped convicts from the Michigan penitentiary. In the running fight through the wild couh- try arqund the Gatineau one-man .was shot, but recovered and is serving a fivervear sentence. The remaining threx1 headed west, presumably taking a freight train going west on the C. p.R. The police think it probable that the two men, Wilson and G-roth, caught at Lethbridge, may that trio and a description will be forwarded to the Dominion police at, Ottawa. In case the supposition) t proves correct the men will have f few long sentences to face. Of the seven men caught, the tigations into thHr characters- have revealed that six have records, none too favorable and by their capture the rounding up is one of the greatest ev- i cr planned. Just what size the gang is will be revealed when the i police arc next heard from. A plan of such a size could not have been manoeuvred so successfully except by a man of White's calibre first class material.- By White's disap- pearance six months ago from the States ihc police that he has been working up the gang for f.hat length of time, using only -profession- al Veemnen with the bert experience.
